Love to Learn - Learn to Love



'Love to Learn, Learn to Love' underpins all that happens here at Sedley's, which includes the work we do and opportunities we provide for children that may need additional support.   All God's children are valued and by providing a broad and balanced curriculum for all, and by working closely with parents, we can help all children to succeed.  All pupils have the right to a high quality education, no matter what challenges they may face.  Inclusion is an integral part of what we do, and is continually and closely monitored and evaluated.   


Children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) all have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children and young people of the same age. They may need extra or different help from that given to others.

Many children and young people who have SEN may also have a disability. A disability is described in law (the Equality Act 2010) as ‘a physical or mental impairment which has a long-term (a year or more) and substantial adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.’

SEND profile for Sedley's CE Primary School


There are currently 5 children (5%) on the SEND register here at Sedley's. 

These children may receive support which is ‘additional to or different’ from the provision of other children in their class in order for them to access the curriculum and to make good progress from their starting point.  These children may have a need in one or more of the following areas:-

  • Cognition & Learning
  • Communication & Interaction
  • Social, Emotional & Mental Health
  • Physical & Sensory

How do we provide support for SEND pupils?

Quality First Teaching is crucial in the support of pupils with SEND.  Teachers make use of the Mainstream Core Standards to support their practice so that strategies, resources and interventions are used to maximum effect.  The Mainstream Core Standards documents below explain what schools must do to support children and young people with SEND so that they are included in all aspects of school life, make progress and are happy in school.


We also make use of a wide range of interventions to support children.


  • English and Maths interventions/small group work.
  • Feedback/catch up sessions for individuals or small groups. 
  • Lego therapy
  • Social Skills
  • Teaching Assistant support in class.
  • Sensory Space
  • Busy Fingers/fine motor control.
  • Memory intervention
  • Speech and language interventions.
  • Colourful Semantics
  • BEAM
  • Sensory Circuits


We also liaise with a range of outside agencies to access further support beyond the Mainstream Core Standards. 

  • LIFT (Local Inclusion Forum Team)
  • Specialist teaching service
  • Speech and Language Therapy service
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Community Paediatrics
  • Early Help.
